“Is India going to happen next year? Probably not,” he said at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
When the source asked what the problem was with the race at Greater Noida, near New Delhi, F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone replied: “Very political.”

“We are keen that Formula One races take place in India at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) till our contract is in operation that is 2015.”
